“Good news!” exclaimed the surgeon. “You are progressing nicely. You will be going home today.” Words comforting to a patient like Michael recovering from major abdominal surgery. Recovery would take time, but now less than a year later Michael is back playing golf, hunting for morel mushrooms and playing with his grandchildren.
"I received excellent care during my hospital stay and follow-up treatment at Mercy. It just reaffirms why Mercy is where my family and I receive our healthcare.”
Three things contributed to his remarkable recovery: our dedicated and highly skilled medical team of physicians, nurses, therapists and technicians. State-of-the-art medical technology like smart pumps that accurately dispense IV medications. And financial support from individuals such as you who continue to care about excellence in healthcare here at Mercy Medical Center.
This is why we are writing today. Mercy has been healing the sick and caring for patients from birth to end-of-life since it opened its doors in 1900. Whether it is cancer, heart disease, strokes, orthopedics, digestive disorders, obstetrics or any number of healthcare needs, Mercy is committed to providing the perfect patient experience. Your gifts enhance the work that we do each and every day.
As the only local, independent hospital in the area, you can count on your gift staying right here in our community. That is our commitment to you. Our mission is clear: to heal the sick and improve the health of the community we serve, embodying the values of integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence. We call that The Mercy Touch.”
Consider a gift today. It could make the difference for a family member, friend or neighbor. In these ever-changing times, isn’t it reassuring to know that high quality, accessible and compassionate care is so close to home?
Thank you. Our patients and their families thank you.
